(Natural News) The far-left Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has risen to unprecedented levels of mainstream acceptance over the past few months, thanks in no small part to the overwhelming number of endorsements, at times accompanied by significant donations it has received from major brands and corporations.

(Article by Calvin Freiburger republished from

Brands endorsing BLM include:

  • Viacom
  • Warner Bros
  • Netflix
  • Hulu
  • HBO
  • NFL
  • NBA
  • Facebook
  • Google
  • Apple
  • Microsoft
  • Amazon
  • Kroger
  • Walmart
  • Target
  • Home Depot
  • Gap
  • Levi’s
  • Warby Parker
  • Nike
  • Chick-fil-A
  • McDonald’s
  • Wendy’s
  • Taco Bell
  • Starbucks
  • Coca-Cola
  • UnitedHealth Group
  • Peloton

The above are just a few of the leading names in entertainment, sports, technology, retail, food, apparel, and more to either endorse BLM by name or issue statements endorsing the group’s central narrative that “systemic racism” permeates American institutions.

Many of those companies have also pledged millions of dollars in donations to left-wing organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, as well as to BLM itself, in the name of promoting racial equality and “reforming” law enforcement.

How many of these overtures to BLM reflect the aforementioned companies’ true values remains an open question, however. While corporations often adopt viewpoints for public-relations purposes, and companies such as Apple and Google are run by liberal ideologues naturally aligned with BLM, this latest wave of support coincides with a nationwide wave of violence and intimidation from pro-BLM protesters.

“These corporations have tremendous presence in black communities and are in close proximity to the riots. Their exposure is not limited to physical assets that might be looted or damaged; brands themselves may suffer reputational damage,” Grant Baker writes at the American Thinker. “After a black drunk driver who pointed a stolen taser at a police officer was shot dead in a Wendy’s parking lot, the restaurant was set ablaze in retaliation. Wendy’s, its logo in the frame of every photo of the incident, loudly announced a $500,000 donation to social justice causes and affirmed its support for the BLM movement.”

“Corporations are making these donations as protection money, hoping to bribe officials of BLM-affiliated organizations into steering the mob away from their store,” Baker continues. “The BLM mobs are far from organic; they are well funded corporate entities plucked off the shelf and filled with professional activists to run them. These activists use their platform to target other corporations with exposure to the riots and pressure them into making donations. Corporations are quick to pick up on the implied threat and immediately capitulate, handing money to their extortionists.”

Whatever their motivations, the deluge of brands boosting BLM across traditional and social media has clearly influenced the general public. An ABC News/Langer Research Associates poll released Tuesday finds that 63% of Americans support Black Lives Matter, including 28% of self-described Republicans and 34% of self-described conservatives (though that support has not yet translated to majority support for policies such as defunding police departments or removing Confederate statues).

It’s doubtful that those numbers would remain as high, or that as many companies would have endorsed it, if the full scope of Black Lives Matter’s true views were more widely known.

While popularly framed in the media as simply a movement to promote racial equality and end police brutality, BLM declares among its official goals “disrupt(ng) the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another”; and fostering “a queer?affirming network … with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking.”

It also officially supports “reproductive justice,” a euphemism for abortion. An estimated 40 percent of all U.S. abortions are sought by black women, meaning that Black Lives Matter supports the annual elimination of more than 344,800 black lives every year.

As for the claims that ignited this latest wave of BLM fervor, the Minnesota killing of George Floyd was instantly and unanimously condemned, and the police officers involved have been charged with murder. As to BLM’s broader claim of “systemic racism” in law enforcement, research actually shows that police are not disproportionately likely to use excessive lethal force against black suspects, but may in fact be less likely due to fear of racism claims.

  • Terrence Popp from warns of impending civil war

    (Natural News) In a recent episode of his “Live from the Lair” program, which is part of Productions, Terrence Popp offered a breakdown of what he sees as a societal recipe for impending civil war, which is brewing right before our very eyes.

    Thanks to the relentless assault on freedom by far-left factions such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM), along with the help of the far-left mainstream media, society has been heating up to a boiling point and is about ready to pop, Popp explains, warning that this same type of thing has happened before throughout history.

    Much like what took place starting back in 1937 in Germany, the Nazi “brownshirts” of today are keeping themselves busy right now destroying businesses, assaulting police officers, rioting in the streets, and causing as much chaos as possible. And when the time is ripe, these violent factions are planning to go for the “kill shot” as part of their full total takeover.

    By kill shot, we are talking mass death and destruction of all resistance in order for these subversive communist factions to secure their spot at the top of the food chain, so to speak. This, it would seem, is the goal of movements like “abolish the police” and “anti-racism.”

    Once this is accomplished, these same modern-day brownshirts will finish cleaning house by eliminating all remaining vestiges of the “old world” system, replacing them with the new – which will not be a pretty sight.

    Part of this will include getting rid of all the “useful idiots” who helped these factions get into power in the first place – meaning liberals will be the first to go. After that, the new system, if it can be stabilized, will become the new ruling system.

    “If a bunch of idiots attacking the police, destroying businesses, attacking citizens … and they’re using a lot of blame and shame, they’re supported by the media and the Democrats, which is virtually an identical blueprint to what happened in Nazi Germany,” Popp notes.

    The good news is that we are more equipped than ever to resist this communist takeover

    While this might all sound like gloom and doom, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, according to Popp. Never before has a society been more equipped to stand against this encroaching tyranny, assuming people are willing to rise up and do something about it.

    In Popp’s view, this is the only time in human history that a population has had both the ability and the tools to resist such an event. One of the biggest and most effective of these tools, of course, is the Second Amendment, which affords Americans the God-given right to protect themselves with firearms.

    However, part of the problem is that Americans are largely unorganized. With so much “diversity” and “multiculturalism” these days, the bonds that would normally hold a society together are in many ways severed, creating distrust, disharmony, confusion and chaos.

    Still, there are ways for good and decent Americans to find other good and decent Americans to join up with in the fight against this encroaching tyranny. It may not be easy at times, but it will be worth it in the long run to prevent the scenario that is brewing from ever fully taking root.

  • B inThis is madness ... BLM sponsors and supporters should be rounded up and put in Fema camps

    • a lot of the ceos are afraid of being publicly spot lighted by blm thugs and lose sales-Trump needs to oficially label blm as a terrorist grpup-then the donations should stop-antifa is officially a terrorist group-they just rolled over to blm

      In Germany in the 1930's communists were shot dead by police during 'protests' so they migrated to the socialist nazi party

      • Pet Rock:  Trump can't change it because of the NAME, the NAME.
